Paolo Rodari of Palazzo Apostolico has a note in Italian about the reception by Pope Benedict of the credentials of the new Ambassador of the USA to the Holy See.
Rodari makes the observation:
Doing theology, in fact, to intervene on Vatican questions from a theological point of view, is not a matter of diplomacy, and this pertains also to ambassadors which are accredited by the Holy See.
So… when it comes to matters of the Church’s teaching, the Liberation theologian and now Honorable Miguel H. Diaz, paid operative of the Obama Administration, can smile and remain diplomatically with pie hole closed as he receives his pay check from Sec. State Hillary Clinton.
It will be interesting to read what Pope Benedict says as he receives Diaz’s credentials.
